CONTEMPORARY LUXURY IN OLD COTSWOLDS CHAPEL - STUNNING VIEWS

Slad House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Self Catering: Spacious Cotswolds Holiday Rental, ideal for two Families

The Old Chapel is a contemporary, Cotswolds family holiday home, sleeping up to 10 (maximum 8 adults).

This beautiful, self-catering accommodation is set on the steep slopes of the Slad Valley, in the heart of the Cotswold Hills, one of the most picturesque and unspoiled locations in England.

Described by The Guardian (December 2013) as 'one of the best cool holiday self-catering accommodations in the Cotswolds...it's both homely and stylish.'

The hamlet of Slad, immortalised by Laurie Lee in his famous novel 'Cider with Rosie', boasts stunning views, a choice of great walks and one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds – The Woolpack.

The converted chapel, built in 1865 and thoroughly renovated a few years ago, provides contemporary, stylish and very comfortable holiday accommodation. 4 bedrooms, large state-of-the-art kitchen-diner and huge open plan living space makes The Old Chapel a unique Cotswolds holiday let.

Surrounded by open meadows, woodland and rolling hills, with walks directly from the door, there's plenty to keep families busy here, all year round.

The Old Chapel is not your average Cotswolds cottage (no low ceilings, no cramped living space). It's a large, unique, stylish family holiday home with wonderful views inside and out.

Excellent Choice!

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 day stay in the Old Chapel in April 2009 together with two children, 7 & 4 and grandparents. Fantastic property, true to the description on the internet site and just as beautiful as the photos suggest. Local pub was a big hit as were the lovely walks which started very close to the house. Fantastic views and a very well equipped house. House furnishings were of an excellent quality. Highly recommended.

Stylish Design and Serene Setting

Five of us stayed at the Chapel in August 2013, and I am late with my review but we all enjoyed our stay so much I wanted to ensure I circled back to it. There were two kids (7 and 5) and two 70+ people in our party, and the house was perfect for all of us. The kids enjoyed the trampoline and running in the upper yard. The rest of us enjoyed the gorgeous artwork, the stylish (but kid friendly) furniture and the well done, spacious kitchen (with a fantastic wood table large enough for far more than the 5 of us). We really enjoyed the Slad setting. Walking to the Woolpack and on some of the local, side streets was quite nice. This was our first visit to the Cotswolds, so we drove to Moreton on Marsh and the other villages that more often make our US guidebooks, but it was nice to return each day to a spot where you will not see any sort of tour bus. It was also a good jumping off spot for a day trip to Wales (Caerphilly Castle specifically for us, although Cardiff would also be manageable). We can't say enough about the chapel, and Debra the manager is also very available and helpful. We hope to stay again in the future.

80th Birthday gathering

I write for all of us;
What a fantastic building and interior design (it was home from home). As we arrived there was an April hail storm, which was a bit unexpected, but we were 'British' and can cope with that sort of thing! Not quite 'Cider with Rosie' - Cote de Rhone with Jan ran pretty close - It's been a great family bonding in delightful surroundings. Loved the locals at 'The Woolpack' - very friendly. Many thanks for the loan of your lovely home.

The Cotswolds is designated as England's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' – as an area it’s 100 miles north to south.

Here in the South Cotswolds the area has a slightly wilder nature, especially in the five beautiful valleys around Stroud, of which Slad Valley is considered the most unspoiled. These are the real Cotswold Hills; nature reserves, meadows, wild orchids, steep climbs and wonderful views, away from the crowds of tourists you find in north Gloucestershire.

Two miles away is Painswick, 'Queen of the Cotswolds', one of many beautiful villages in the area. The Rococo Garden is a must, and you have a choice of stunning mansions, abbeys and castles within a short drive.

Closer to home - a 2 minute walk away - is the famous Woolpack Inn, a timeless pub that serves fantastic food and ales and one of the best views you can imagine.

Nearby Stroud has an award-winning farmers' market on Saturdays, and swimming, cinema and bowling to keep children happy.

Other Activities: horse riding, golf, hiking cinema, bowling, country pubs, gliding, shooting
